At Kett’s Books we have a number of book groups that meet monthly. You can always feel free to join in to see how you like it, or even pop along just because they’re reading a book you’re interested in.
All our groups are relaxed and informal. We often choose books around author visits that are planned, so we have a chance to discuss a book and then meet the author for ourselves.
For more information feel free to contact us online, or ring us for a chat.
It is always useful to get in touch before you join us, in case the diary or book has changed from what’s announced.
To order any of these books, give us a ring or drop us an email, and we’ll set aside a copy for you.
